The Strategic Preparedness and Response Plan 2021 (SPRP2021) was introduced in February 2020 and is WHO's strategy aimed at guiding the coordinated action to be taken at the national, regional, and global levels to overcome the ongoing challenges in the response to COVID-19, address inequities, and chart the course out of the pandemic.

A year on, the SPRP2021 builds on key learnings, and looks towards the safe, equitable and effective delivery of diagnostics, therapeutics and vaccines to successfully tackle the COVID-19 pandemic.

The WHO Foundation manages COVID-19 Solidarity Response Fund (SRF), in collaboration with the UN Foundation and a global network of fiduciary partners. The SRF supports WHO's work across all ten pillars of the SPRP.

In addition, WHO Foundation is a partner of the Access to COVID-19 Tools Accelerator (ACT-A) that was launched by WHO and other stakeholders on April 2020. This partnership has supported the fastest, most coordinated, and successful global effort to develop tools to fight a disease in history. WHO Foundation globally supports this initiative through the ACT Together Fund and supports WHO's leading role in vaccination through COVAX.
